New Exhibit Opens!

Throughout the nineteenth century Americans were fascinated by westward expansion. Printed imagery played an important role in the dissemination of knowledge & understanding about the West. 

Now visitors to the CFD Old West Museum’s new exhibition, Imprinting the West: Manifest Destiny, Real and Imagined will see 48 hand-colored engravings and lithographs that explore these depictions and the influence the artists had on the perception of the wild west.
